Give me this dress, a flight to Greece and a glass of rose – and I’m all set!

If you’ve been to any summer wedding or read any fashion blog this season, chances are you’ve glimpsed this oh so lovely¬†Self Portrait dress. ¬†Lacy, feminine and unique, I think it’s the perfect pretty party dress for any summer occasion. Something not so pretty? The $480 price tag.

Miranda Kerr is a fan. Miranda also has supermodel/Orlando Bloom divorce money, so $480 probably doesn’t set her back like us peasants.

Surprisingly, there aren’t too many dupes currently available for this design. Determined to save money and find a bargain, I put my years of online shopping/sleuthing experience to the test. Finally, the angels at Bloomingdale’s heard my prayers and sent me a Sunday blessing with a gorgeous look for less:

Brought to you by in-house Bloomingdale’s brand, Aqua, you can look very Self Portrait esque without the price tag. Sidenote – this brand Aqua has so many cute dresses right now – definitely check them out. Thanks to the neckline details, I almost love the look for less more than the original. If you’re headed to a bridal shower or wedding and don’t want to commit a serious faux pas, the dress also comes in pink and black.

Happy Sunday and happy shopping!
